A Brief Step-By-Step Guide on How to Operate Heat Press Machines

They’re much more affordable and could be perfect if you’re just starting out and you prefer to save a few hundred bucks. The professional heat press machines are geared for making bulk orders.


They have a much bigger platen (metal board) for a bigger working area to cater large garments. The professional heat press is also complete with more sophisticated time, temperature, and pressure settings. This is perfect for t-shirt entrepreneurs who are planning to offer orders by the hundreds in the future.

But whether you’re using the basic or the pro, heat press machines are basically operated the same way. For starters, here’s a brief step-by-step guide on how to operate heat press machines:


  • Turn on the power by flipping the on/off switch
  • Turn the thermostat knob to the right until you see the red heating light
  • When the thermometer indicates the desired temperature for your transfer, turn the knob back to the left until the heating light turns off. The heating light will go on and off to regulate your desired temperature
  • If your machine has a digital timer, press it to start the timer and when you hear the alarm, press stop to reset
  • Lift up the handle to open the press
  • Lay out t-shirt and lay Transfer Paper onto shirt facing down
  • Bring the handle down. The handle should lock firmly in place
  • Set the timer based on the instructions on your Transfer Paper
  • Lift the handle to open the press
  • Peel the Transfer Paper from the shirt
  • Allow at least 24 hours for the print to “lock” before washing the t-shirts
